In 1945, former LIFE photographer David E. Scherman took this famous portrait of fashion model and photographer Lee Miller in Adolf Hitler’s bathtub in Munich.
“During the war, Lee and I were mostly inseparable. We were together at the linkup with the Russians, and we were together at Dachau,” Scherman recalled. “We moved into Hitler’s headquarters in Munich. Lee and I found an elderly gent who barely spoke English, and we gave him a carton of cigarettes and said, “Show us around Munich.” He showed us Hitler’s house and I photographed Lee taking a bath in Hitler’s bathtub. . . . ”
